The J-P Wimille was a French automobile manufactured from 1948 until 1949. Powered by a rear-mounted 22 hp Ford V-8, it was an aerodynamic saloon designed by racing driver Jean-Pierre Wimille. No more than 20 were built. Some of the cars appeared after Wimille's death in the 1953 film "Les amours finissent à l'aube".[1]
